And isn't it ironic that in fact all or most of the music is free for listening, just not for taking and owning, yet that's the complaint of Deadheads?

Hey Ring-O; I've been taking a purely academic perspective above that is a bit counter to some of what has been posted but NOT because I don't want "them" to get all they deserve/can/etc. But, do note that Phil Lesh WAS one that did NOT agree with the pulling of the SBDs. Nor was Barlow. So, some do think it's a wise biz decision, while others, for whatever reason, do not.

As I outlined above, I think that in fact, until "data" are in on profit margins, it is in fact still debatable that a hardline approach vs a "let em have them" is best for profits for those concerned...it seems it is not settled...again, I am defn NOT one that "wants it all for free" and I in fact pay for EVERY release of "my" era each and every time it comes out.

Hey MS: I'd gladly buy up EVERY CREAM release if they remixed and upgraded those SBDs of the shows we share!

saving a 100+ jobs at GDM was one of the main reasons given for pulling the entire collection Nov 05 - followed by contracting out intellectual property to Rhino and layoffs within a year...



"I'd gladly buy up EVERY CREAM release if they remixed and upgraded those SBDs of the shows we share!"

i probably wouldn't have w/o first hearing a taste, you might have very well bought them anyways, knowing your penchant for what i like to refer to as incorporeal energy swathed in over driven vacuum tube harmonic distortion ..."Clapton is god" wasn't written on subway walls for his voice :)

"penchant for what i like to refer to as incorporeal energy swathed in over driven vacuum tube harmonic distortion"

That's me! The "clipped" recordings though, do bother me a tad--hoping against hope the SBDs could be tweaked (?) to reduce that with CREAM...

The point you make about layoffs, prec'd $ making opportunities, etc., though, is where I still have questions as outlined above (was it a good biz decision?, etc., etc.).

10/15/67 is quite listenable, not to say there isn't a lot of room for improvement with some pro enhancement...not to sound ungrateful, but 9/3/67 is the one i have issues with, gave up 2 tracks into it, is it worth persevering?


check this out, McLaughlin directly quotes Sunshine during his epic "Dream" (Between Nothingness and Eternity - live Central Park - my fav Maha) as well as an odd time theme that is based on Clapton's accompaniment during Rollin and Tumblin'...unfortunately only the 2nd half of the monstrosity was uploaded, this clip starts in the middle of Goodwin's solo with the last of the Sunshine quotes, then segues into variations on a'Rollin' theme (in odd time, of course!) with John/Billy a'tumblin'...boys will be boys

sorry to say, probably not, I only sent that one cause of how good fall, 67 was...but fear not; the shows I have in hand more than make up for it!

BTW, do you have Trader's Little Helper? IE, it would be much better if I can send you a couple DVDs with the SHNs/FLACs and you convert to WAVs to burn, or use as you see fit if you have fancy pants players...this would also give you all the "info" and artwork, etc, etc. Plus, the studio disks will show you JB can/could DEFN sing, and even EC wasn't too bad in 66-67.

Pt being, I wouldn't have to burn you all the ind CDs...you would do that. TLH is FREE, just google it if you aren't already familiar.

don't know why i didn't think of DVD's cause that's how i've been storing my data...Flac Frontend or MKW should do the trick at this end (and about time to start making full use of the i-pod anyways)

thanks!
